Dry T-60


T-60 - project supersonic bomber of Soviet medium-range distance, which was a deep modernization of the Su-24. Exact specifications not, but presumably the plane had variable geometry wing, fuselage, and two flat engine, had thrust vector control.

Armament consists of six Kh-15, 55-X and X-101. It is also used precision-guided munitions and free-falling bombs. The initiative of creation of the project has taken the Sukhoi Design Bureau. Work on the design began in 1984 year, however, due to the completion of the cold war had put aside and resume development only in the early 90-x. T-60 had to replace the Soviet Su-24 in the Air Force of the Soviet Union.


Design T-60


A lot of things in the design of the aircraft were borrowed from the T-4 aircraft. Among the innovations that were introduced in T-60, there were some controversial decisions: the wing consoles were removed under the fuselage (not taking into account its real deformations), the engine was used with a variable degree of two-contouring, the so-called. "Two-pipe" engine. For this reason, technical work was delayed for a long time and was carried out before the collapse of the Soviet Union. The aircraft was planned to be delivered before the year 2003. There are no more facts about the development of T-60. Analysts of aviation suggest that they wanted to equip the plane with stealth technology for flights on ultra-high-speed conditions.

Estimated weapons T-60


Presumably plane T-60 could carry 6-8 cruise missiles X-55MS X-55, 101-X, X-65, aeroballistic Kh-15P X-15, 20 up tons bombs. At launch multi-position installations MKU6-172 drum can be installed small-size missile X-41.

.. "hide" the tail of the aircraft in the hull, build up some kind of wind tunnel around the tail .. air will be pumped through the pipe .. and the tail will be protected from impacts, and you will get an airplane, supposedly without a tail)
